Zendaya Offers Her Best Advice For Maintaining Natural Hair — & We’re Here For It

We can always count on Zendaya to give us some real talk, especially when it comes to beauty. The 20-year-old actress has been an open book about her struggle to embrace her natural curls after a lifetime of a love-hate relationship. And if her latest Instagram is any indication, the star’s commitment to learning to love her natural look has truly paid off — and it looks damn good.
“When you've spent the past however many years growing your damaged hair back, avoiding heat, wearing wigs and trying every natural product in the world and you finally see a little curl pattern comin back...#yeslawwwwd,” Zendaya captioned the mirror selfie, which shows her curls looking lush, voluminous, and thoroughly envy-inducing. But if you still have questions about she got there — or what she did in between — let this new video from her official website shed some light on the subject. The cat’s out of the bag: When Zendaya isn’t wearing wigs, weaves, or extensions (which, as she’ll tell you, are all different things) to change up her vibe, she’s using water to keep things natural. Yep, her shortcut to getting those springy curls is just plain old H2O. How’s that for a beauty secret?
